Released Manchester United striker Michael Owen expects to sign for a new club.

With almost two weeks of the transfer window remaining, Owen is keeping his options open, but has reiterated his desire is to continue to play Premier League football.

"I'm wanting to play and eager to start again," he told Sky Sports 1. "I just wish the fans on my Twitter account were running the clubs, then I'd sign for anyone I wanted!

"I want to play in the best possible team. If it was local to my house, excellent. I want to play more often, but that's not written in the contract.

"I don't really want to play in the Championship, I know I can still play in the Premier League and can still score goals.

"Obviously the question mark for any potential buyers is injuries but I just need a good run of games and I just didn't have that at Manchester United. I need to regularly train and play.

"There's been interest from all corners of the Earth, every nation you can think of - Germany, Italy, Spain, Turkey.

"My ideal is the Premier League, I want to play in the Premier League - then it's whoever's the best team, then things like location, the deal, different things will play a part."
